Dimitar Berbatov has admitted that he is not sure that Paulo Dybala would be able to cope with the physicality of the Premier League should he seal a move to Manchester United this summer.

The Juventus forward has been touted as a possible transfer target for the Red Devils this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add to his attacking options at Old Trafford.

The Argentina international is thought to be ready to be included in a swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline, although it remains to be seen whether the move will happen.

Dybala is widely regarded as a one of European football’s top attacking talents and he would represent an exciting addition to the Manchester United squad this summer.

Former Manchester United star Berbatov is a fan of Dybala but he admits that he has some concerns about whether he would be able to quickly adapt to the rigours of the Premier League.

Speaking in an interview with Metro, Berbatov said: “I am a fan of Dybala.

“You can see his football intelligence. The thinking, his pass, the left-foot, his shots, his free-kicks, I like him a lot.

“The only thing is that he is not tall or big, he’s small. Will he fit into the Premier League where it’s more physical?

“But you look at other players with his stature – David Silva for example – he’s a legend. It’s important for him to look at those types of players if the swap [goes through].”

Manchester United will get their Premier League campaign under way when they host Frank Lampard’s Chelsea FC at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils finished sixth and without a trophy last term.
